Blest Sunday: Blogger Recognition Award

Hey, is anypawdy out there? Guess who? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Yep, with sis Dezi off at Cat Scout summer camp havin’ all the fun, I’s here hangin’ with mommy and takin’ over Blest Sunday. I’s might not get to be a Cat Scout, but hey, I’s still queen of our castle. MOL  Okay, so maybe I’s not takin’ over, cuz sissy didn’t really go anywhere. As ya’ll know, we’re all ‘bout the truth. But, we do like bein’ pawrt of the community, and purrticipatin’ in events that we might only do virtually. And Cat Scouts is one of those.

          It sure is Raena. We were so blest years ago to find Cat Scouts. It’s a small community, but a community that cares ‘bout it’s members and others. Me’s made such amazin’ furiends there. Some of those furiends are pawrt of blogville as fellow bloggers and some aren’t. Ya’ know, bloggin’ isn’t fur everypawdy, but a cat luvver is a cat luvver and enjoys sharin’ fotos of their gawjus kitties and spendin’ time with other cat peeps. And, Cat Scouts is just one of the places one can do that. 


 Blogger Recognition Award Badge


And one day, I’s gonna get to be a Cat Scout too. In the meantime, I’s wanna fanky fank the peeps and kitties of Kittyclysm. A while back they gave us the Blogger Recognition Award. Here’s the rules:


  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog

  • Write a post to show your award

  • Give a brief story of how your blog started

  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers

  • Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to

  • Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

          And since our bloggy is called DezizWorld, me will tell you how we started. Befur Cat Scouts, there was another site fur cat luvvers to get together and show off fotos of their amazin’ kitties. While there, we met Timmy and Buddy of Tomcat Commentary and Blues Lounge. One day they asked ifin any cat would like to be a guest blogger fur them and me jumped at the chance. After all, sis Lexi had her facebook page, so me wanted to do somethin’ on me’s own too. They told us all we needed to do was create an account on WordPress. Well, me couldn’t get to that fast enuff. But with mommy’s limited knowledge of catputers and stuffs, befur we knew it, we had our very own bloggy. Okay, so it might have taken mommy a whole 24 hours to get all set up, but all she did was follow the instructions on the screen. She had no idea, we were creating our own bloggy. But we did. And we’ve been here ever since. And ya know what? We’ve never looked back. Our accidental bloggy has been the source of great furiendships and adventures.


 Dezi lays in chair and looks pretty


          As fur advice to new bloggers, we would tell you, above all…be truthful…even when it hurts. You can never go wrong with the truth. And, have fun. Whether you have a thousand visitors or 1, bloggin’ is a great way to chronicle the life/lives of your fur baby/ies.


 Raena lays on floor


Y, Sissy, that’s great advice. Altho’ I’s not been bloggin’ as long as you have, I’s luvs every minute. I’s enjoy visitin’ our furiends and keepin’ up with what they’re doin’. I’s would say another ‘purrtant thing fur new bloggers to keep in mind, is visitin’ others. And, don’t give in to the purressure of writin’ what everypawdy else does. Be true to yourself. Find your voice and stick with it. No blog is fur everypawdy, but ifin you put yourself out there, you will find furiends.

          That’s great advice Raena. Me’s actually purroud of ya’. Now, we’re also s’posed to nominate 15 other bloggers fur the award. The truth is, there are lots of amazin’ blogs out there and we think they all deserve the Recognition award, but we just can’t list them all. So we’re only gonna list a few. But, all of you feel furee to take this award, cuz you deserve it. 

1. Momma Cat and her Bear Cat 

2. The Canadian Cats 

3. Noir Kitty Mews


Those are some great nominees sissy.

Blest Sunday: So Many Blessings and Nose to Nose

(While eating breakfast, Dezi and Raena start a little meow <chat>

Meow Raena, did you enjoy your stroll yesfurday? 


 Dezi watching Raena while they eat


          I’s sure did sissy. ‘Course we had to keep stoppin’ cuz mommy kept getting’ tired and coughin’. I’s’ll sure be glad when she gets well. 


Yeah, me’s stroll was purretty much the same. We purrobably shoulda waited till she was well befur askin’ her to go strollin’.


 Dezi and Raena look out the front door


          But yesfurday was the last purretty day we’re gonna have fur a while. It was actually 90 degrees outside. 


 Raena checks ou the bucket of mandarins from LouLou


Yep and today’s in the 50’s and really windy. We’re all sneezin’ and wheezin’. MOL  Anyways, it’s Blest Sunday, and we’ve fur sure got some blessings to be fankful fur; includin’ the nice weather we had last week. We received a whole bucket of honey madarins from sweet LouLou. Well, mommy actually received them. With her teethies in the condition they’re in, she can’t really eat ‘em, but she said she was gonn try juicin’ ‘em. Maybe that extra Vitamin C will help her get well faster.


 Raena checks out the mandarins sent by LouLou


          I’s sure hope so sissy. I’s know we’re still enjoyin’ that yummy cheese wheel LouLou sent. We even get a bite every once in a while. And what a blessin’ we got yesfurday. Ya’ know when mommy was doin’ all that cryin’, and you were so worried ‘bout her and meowin’ to high heaven? 


Dezi lap selfie


Yeah, turns out those were tears of joy. But me couldn’t be sure at furst. Ya’ know she was on the fone, and sometimes peeps aren’t so nice, and mommy don’t always fight back. But it turns out she was talkin’ with some of our Angels and they were tryin’ to figger out how to help mommy get that dental work she needs. They donated a hefty pawtion of what she needs, we just gotta raise the rest. And ya’ know mommy hates bein’ needy, and doesn’t expect anypawdy to do anythin’ fur her, so the respawnse by our pawsum Angels made her cry lots of joy tears. She reminds us everyday how much we are blest, and me always believes her when me looks into her eyes.


          Me too sissy. Mommy luvs us so much. We oughtta remind everypawdy ‘bout the fundraiser here. And of course they can always donate directly to our paypal address: We purreciate all those who have donated so far to help our mommy. Ya’ know, we luv her and want her to feel as good as she can. And fanky fank ya’ awnty Petal, awnty Gretel, awnty Cindy and awnty Julie. And of course we continue to fank those we’ve already mentioned in previous postys.

Liebster Award: Getting To Know Us Better

(Dezi lifts her head out of one of the boxes she’s been investigating.) Mommy, are all these boxes fur us?

 Dezi sitting in box

     Yes baby, all these boxes are for us.

 Raena plays with the packing paper in a chewy box

          (Raena looks up from under the packing paper in one of the boxes she’s been playing in) I’s luvs this, Christmas mommy. Sissy, did you smell dat box over there? (Raena looks to a box sitting on mommys chair)

Me did Raena. We are truly blest kitties. We are so grateful to all our Christmas Angels. Some of those boxes are fur mommy too. She was cryin’ and followin’ us ‘round with da flashy box like crazy yesfurday. We haven’t even opened a gift yet and mommy already has 200 fotos she needs to upload to da catputer. Cuz she was cryin’ so much we’re guessin’ not all those fotos will be publishable, but we gotta get ‘em on da catputer to know. So we’ll be MIA most of today and maybe tomorrow, so mommy can do just dat.

 Liebster Award Badge

          In da meantime, we were nominated by Schickes and Schoenes blog fur da Liebster Award. Dat’s German fur those of ya’ who don’t know. Fanky fank ya’ fur da nomination. We’re honored. As with everything in life, there’s rules to follow.

1. Thank the purrson what nominated you.

2. Answer 11 questions.

3. Compose 11 questions.

4. Nominate and notify new blogs.

5. Post the Award Badge and Rules.

So, let’s get to the questions. We’ll be takin’ turns answerin’ da questions cuz sissy says I’s still a kitten and don’t know everything.

1. Do you have interests that keep you busy, but that you don’t blog about?

Dezi: Nope, we tell ya’ll everything. MOL  Okay, maybe not Everything, but most everything.

2. Be Honest: Do you read long posts from beginning to end? Or do you quickly skim through the post, scroll to the end and hit the Like button?

Raena: We read ‘em all. Well, mommy reads ‘em all to us from beginnin’ to end. We tend to be a little wordy, so ifin we expect you all to read our postys we oughtta be ready to read yours.

3. Do you prefer to read the book or watch the movie?

Mommy A: I much prefer the movie. My eyes are too old to read the small print of books. And because we do read all the posts, we don’t have time for reading books. LOL

4. When making decisions, do you go by gut feeling or reason?

Dezi: We all meowed and chatted about this one, and our answers are the same. Depends on what the situation is. So we do both.

5. Do you still send hand-written letters or cards, or do you send emails and whatsapp?

Mommy A: I have to admit, I was never a letter writer or card sender. I prefer a phone call. And now, we don’t have the money to buy cards or stamps, so we send emails and ecards. I don’t know what whatsapp is, so we don’t use it. And I still prefer a phone call. If I have your number, you might just get one. LOL

6. If you could go on a time travel for the day, to where and when would you go?

Raena: I’s wouldn’t change anything. Mines life has never been better.  Dezi: Well, me would like to…nah, me wouldn’t change anything either.  Mommy A: I would love more time with Lexi, Shad, Lucky and those that came before, but knowing they would be leaving me soon, wouldn’t make it worth it. So I wouldn’t change anything either.

7. Do you know any poems by heart?

Dezi: Only da ones mommy makes up fur us. And some from da Bible.

8. Which conspiracy theory do you like best or think is weirdest?

Raena: We purrfur the facts. We don’t really follow or know any conspiracy theories.

9. Imagine there’s suddenly no power for 3 months. Would you be prepared?

Raena: WTC!!! (what the cat?!!!) Noooooooooooo!!!!

Dezi: No Way!!! Me’s a modern day kitty. What would we do? Mes fountain needs power, our catputer needs power. Just to have hot water and da ‘lectric blanky, we need power. Dat’s just not right. Nope, no way, we gotta have power. Mommy’s so beside herself she can’t even answer this. MOL

10. Prosecco or beer?

Mommy A: We don’t drink alcoholic beverages, and I don’t know what prosecco is. Based on the choices tho’, I would guess neither. I like coca cola, coffee, hot cocoa and tea. And the girls would go for catnip tea.

11. Are you a night owl or are you up with the lark?

Raena: Both. Mommy has trouble sleepin’ and I’s like to get up early and eat, so we stay up till mommy crashes and then get up when mines tummy growls. MOL

Yep Raena, and sometimes your tummy growls too early. Me’s not sure it’s always your tummy. Anyways, there’s our answers, hope ya’ll enjoyed readin’ ‘em. Now we know a lot of you have already received this award some time in the past. But, cuz it’s an answer the question type of award, and getting’ to know our furiends is so much fun, we’re gonna nominate anyways. Ifin ya’ don’t purrticipate in awards, dat’s okay, just know we’re thinkin’ ‘bout ya’. And ifin we don’t list you, but you’d like to take the challenge to answer da questions, purrlease take the award and let us know.

          We know we were s’posed to come up with our own questions, but these were really good, so we’re only gonna change one of them. So ifin you accept our nomination, fur question 10, substitute this: 10. What’s your favorite Music and Movie Genre? So here they are all together ifin you wanna do a copy and paste: 

1. Do you have interests that keep you busy, but that you don’t blog about?

2. Be Honest: Do you read long posts from beginning to end? Or do you quickly skim through the post, scroll to the end and hit the Like button?

3. Do you prefer to read the book or watch the movie?

4. When making decisions, do you go by gut feeling or reason?

5. Do you still send hand-written letters or cards, or do you send emails and whatsapp?

6. If you could go on a time travel for the day, to where and when would you go?

 7. Do you know any poems by heart?

8. Which conspiracy theory do you like best or think is weirdest?

9. Imagine there’s suddenly no power for 3 months. Would you be prepared?
